LUXILON LADDER, September 13 – May 14, 2017
Get into serious match shape this winter by participating in the LUXILON ladder competition.   Twenty-four players are placed into six groups (four players per group) based on ability.   Players of each group play one another (three matches) with each player receiving three points per victory.   The player with the highest amount of points goes into the group above, while the player with the fewest points goes down a group, with the other two players remaining in the group.   If two players have the same number of points, then the result between those two players will decide which player goes up or down.   If three players have equal points, we will take the total number of games won minus the total number of games lost to determine their aggregate total and use that number to determine which players go up or down.  Matches are played up to nine games with a tie-breaker at 8-8.    Match times, results and player records are stored on our tournament software datebase to everyone can keep up with their positions.

There are a total of 15 rounds and each player will receive 15 cans of tennis balls to play their matches -
2016 – 1) September 13-26;  2) September 27 – October 9; 3) October 11-23; 4) October 25 – November 6; 5) November 8-20; 7) Desember 6-18
